I love my Instant Pot (and if you don’t have an instant pot, you need one)! If you’re wondering, what is the Instant Pot, will you love it? It is an easy-to-use pressure cooker (also known as super safe) that eliminates all the “fear” of pressure cooking. (Check them out on Amazon here.)
I love being able to grab chicken breasts straight out of the freezer, put them in the Instant Pot, and have a meal ready to go in just a few minutes. Not only is it healthy, it’s delicious and tender!
If you use a clay pot regularly, you know to thaw frozen meat first and then the recipe usually takes several hours to cook (like my Crockpot chicken tacos
). Cooking chicken in the
slow cooker is perfect for when I’m out all day and want to come home with a meal that’s ready to go, but the instant cooker cooks a frozen meal in just minutes. I mean, I TRY to plan meals, but sometimes it’s 5pm and I haven’t really even thought about dinner (please tell me I’m not the only one)!
In this recipe, you cook fresh chicken for 12 minutes and frozen chicken for 16! Are you starting to see what I mean when I want to call it the Miracle Pot?
4 ingredients, that’s all it takes to get started. Chicken breast, taco seasoning (I prefer homemade taco seasoning), chicken broth and salsa, that’s it! Once cooked, simply crush the chicken and you’re ready to serve!
The traditional taco fillings and hard shells are perfect, but I also love using soft tortilla shells or even serving this over a bed of lettuce for the perfect taco salad.
We prepare a whole tray of toppings, sour cream, homemade sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole … Practically whatever you want! Have some fun with your ingredients to see what you can create!
I love making this recipe not only because it is so simple, but because everyone in my family is satisfied! Seriously, who doesn’t love tacos?
If you’re serving a crowd, this makes it the perfect taco bar… and putting the Instant Pot hot means your guests can serve themselves whenever they want.
Add a simple salad while the chicken cooks and you have a full meal ready in minutes!
This recipe freezes and reheats perfectly! Leftovers can be frozen in freezer bags for later use (if there’s really leftover!) and heated in the microwave until they’re hot for a quick meal. We’ve also used this chicken to make a last-minute guest nachos dish!
Instant Pot Chicken is so easy to make and truly one of the most versatile recipes I’ve come across (and one you’ll pull out your pressure cooker for any day of the week). Super fast, incredibly delicious and enjoyable for the public… All the reasons to make Instant Pot Chicken Tacos tonight!
